Still like Nikon

James B., Newegg

  • Summary: Could be too much camera for me, but didn't have much choice at time. I do think I like the old-school controls, compared to the newer d750 or 7000. Lots of people seem to be jumping ship to mirrorless makers, for weight and size, but I like the proven Nikon dslr lenses despite having to change them...
  • Pros: High pixel count, great video quality, good battery life even with external gps, works well with inexpensive battery grip if using the live view more. can zoom live view to focus video, face detection focus mode works well for video. Love the controls, that are similar to d300 for me, which I was...
  • Cons: Very heavy. especially to carry all day, specially with grip. Size can be intimidating to your subjects but they get used to it. Very difficult to focus hand-held, sharp/without blur compared to D300 due to higher pixels and heaviness of camera and it's more apparent when reviewing later than on ...

I love this camera... but

  • Summary: it attracts way too much dust on the sensor. My D200 was never this bad with dust. Granted, I'm changing lenses quite a bit (6 of my 7 lenses are primes), but the sensor cleaner DOES NOT WORK AT ALL!

  • Summary: The D800 is a beast. Before this camera I was shooting DX only, with a D300s and a D90 as a backup. Over the years ive collected only FX lens’ and was waiting for a decent full frame camera (D610 sensor in a D700 body!!) and the D400 which never came to be.

Great Camera But . . .

  • Summary: The features and performance of the D800 is unsurpassed in my opinion. Very very good camera. Very happy with the resolution. You can virtually crop to the smallest detail ( in RAW format ) without fear of losing detail. Beware of two major points: 1)Get a large memory card when shooting in RAW.

Difficult review to write

Fish Guy, Amazon

  • Summary: I won't rehash all the specs and comparisons for this camera. I did my research for 8 months, and decided that this was the camera I would buy, trading up from a Nikon D300. Amazon had the best price and service, so I bought it here.
